Spindle lock

This tool is fitted with an automatic spindle lock so that it can
be used as a normal screwdriver. Use the tool this way to
loosen very tight screws or to firmly tighten screws.
Hints for optimum use
Always use the correct type and size of screwdriver bit.
If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small
amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.
Use the spindle lock to loosen very tight screws or to
firmly tighten screws.
Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight line
with the screw.
When screwing in wood, it is recommended to drill a pilot
hole with a depth equal to the length of the screw. A pilot
hole guides the screw and prevents splintering or
distortion of the wood. For the optimum size of the pilot
hole, refer to the table below.
When screwing in hardwood, also drill a clearance hole
with a depth equal to half the length of the screw. For the
optimum size of the clearance hole, refer to the table
